The Exotic Shorthair is often referred to as the "Shorthaired Persian" because it shares its lineage with the Persian breed.
The Exotic Shorthair has a distinctive round face with large, expressive eyes and a short, broad nose. This gives them a sweet and endearing expression that resembles a cuddly teddy bear.
The Exotic Shorthair's coat is plush, dense, and luxurious to the touch. It comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns, including tabby, solid, tortoiseshell, and more.
Unlike their Persian relatives, Exotic Shorthairs have shorter coats that require less grooming. While regular brushing is still recommended to prevent matting.
Exotic Shorthairs have a laid-back and easygoing nature. They are generally known for their calm and gentle temperament, making them ideal companions for those seeking a relaxed and affectionate pet.

These cats are known for their affectionate nature and love to snuggle up with their owners. They enjoy being petted and seek out human companionship.

European Shorthairs have low grooming requirements. Regular brushing helps to keep their coat in good condition, and occasional nail trimming is usually sufficient for their grooming needs.
